Hydraulics

Over the past 47 years, Sun’s hydraulics business has provided global capital goods industries with hydraulic components and systems for transmitting fluid power to control force, speed and motion. Sun’s products typically add a fine degree of precision, safety and reliability to the machinery and equipment in which they are used.

We design and manufacture screw-in hydraulic cartridge valves, manifolds and integrated fluid power packages. Our products provide important functionality within a hydraulic system, controlling fluid flow rates, pressures and direction.

In recent years, we have aggressively expanded our offering of electrically actuated cartridge valves. And because hydraulic systems are increasingly relying on signals from onboard electronic control systems to manage functions, it is necessary for many of our hydraulic products to be more future-focused and capable of digital communications.

    Flow Control Valves

    Proportional throttle valves and priority flow controls ensure that operator input is translated into smooth, controlled, predictable equipment operation.

Electronics

The acquisition of Enovation Controls enables us to further develop our digital and electronic capabilities in line with our goal of technology leadership and in response to the global megatrends affecting our industry. Enovation Controls integrates products and technologies in solutions that connect operators to vehicles or machines through graphical displays, telematics (the long-distance sending and receiving of computerized data) and vehicle and machinery controls. Enovation Controls’ product portfolio addresses various end markets and includes electronic controls, displays, instrumentation panels, gages, and battery chargers. Some of these products serve the same markets as our hydraulics segment (e.g., materials handling equipment and off-highway vehicles for the construction, agricultural and utility industries). However, most of the products address markets not historically served by the hydraulics segment (e.g. power generation equipment and recreational marine and power sports vehicles).

Sun, through its HCT brand, offers easy-to-apply, environmentally ruggedized electronic controllers to suit virtually any application requiring an electro-hydraulic solution and are universally compatible with all major hydraulic OEM proportional products.
